We were taken out by our neighbors for taking care of their puppy, not a bad deal for us! They chose Alforno and said they loved the food and service. We've had takeout pizza from there many times (love the fried eggplant on their pizzas), but never a sit down dinner. The thing i liked the best was that their... More

My friend, who has a condo in Old Saybrook, loves this place. We had a late lunch and had, of course, a pizza, which had a wonderful thin crust. The place was almost empty so we chatted with our waitress who is applying to medical school, so we had an interesting discussion about medical schools!

Started with the butternut squash and apple soup which was delicious, and had the small plate of spaghetti and meatballs. The service is wonderful and the servers are knowledgeable. The specials are interesting too. Ambience is wonderful, good for families too.

Whether you want pizza Or Italian gourmet selections, this is the right place to go. Fresh bread, pasta, excellent meats and seafood selections. Nice wine list. Can get crowded so make a reservation. An upbeat environment and attentive staff. You must try it!

I'd not been to this restaurant before and thus was rather surprised to walk into a lovely 'intimate' sized space with a great vibe. I've been looking for a chic but fun Italian bistro on the shoreline....and this is it. Located on Route 1 Boston Post Road about two miles from Old Saybrook village's Main Street. This was a special... More

The free bread, coupled with nice olive oil put on the table, was great! However, my chicken parmesan was no better than a frozen entry available at the supermarket. The lunch portion, priced at $15.50, was about the size of a small hamburger and came with some cold ziti with awful tomato sauce and NO SALAD. I could have gone... More

There are many Italian restaurants in and around our community, so many I wonder how they all survive. But this one is consistently enjoyable, excellent veal parmigiana, good wine choices, friendly staff. We enjoy this restaurant for it's comfortable ambience and have often taken friends there.

Terrible experience. After calling ahead and being informed they didn't take reservations, but that there was plenty of space we went there and indeed found a half empty restaurant. But when we asked for a table for 8 they wouldn't accommodate us. The best they would offer is two separate tables of 4 or go somewhere else.... we went to... More
